How to Find the Perfect Hairdresser

The power of a relationship between a hairdresser and a client. A great highlight and haircut are a large part of it, but it can go way beyond that if you find the right hairdresser for you.

Hairdressers are friendly, highly skilled and inspired.

Find a hairdresser that is highly skilled, inspired colourists and hairstylists with a creative vision

Ask Around

The best way to find a hairdresser is to ask for one. Ask your friends who have great color, co workers who get their hair blown out regularly and anyone on the street who has amazing hair. Great hair speaks for itself and if you compliment someone on their hair and they promptly pull their hairdresser’s business cards out and rave about her customer service, you have a solid lead.

Word of Mouth

I'm a firm believer that the best place to find a great hair stylist is from the people around you. Ask your friends, family, co-workers, acquaintances, or even strangers. The key is that you ask people whose hair you'd love to copy.

Be realistic about your expectations

Remember that your hairstylist wields scissors, not a wand. Know your hair type and be realistic about the amount of time and effort you're willing to commit to styling your hair every day.

Count the products we use on you.

“You know how good your hair looks when you leave a salon? This is why. You would not believe how many people say they can’t get their hair to do anything and when I ask what products they use they say, ‘None.’ Let us know if you need help choosing the right products for your hair.”

Don't overlook personality when deciding on a hairdresser.

We're all different - a person I feel comfortable with may scare the pants off my mother! If you see a woman whose hair you like, ask who her stylist is.
If you hear good things about a stylist, book a special occasion 'do. This provides a chance to try the hairdresser without pressure to get your hair cut.

A bad cut

If you don’t like the cut, don’t use that stylist again. If you can’t face asking not to use that stylist when going back to the hairdresser then don’t go back. There are plenty more fish in the sea.

Hairdressers cut and style hair. The stylist’s main goal is to make sure the customer is satisfied with his or her haircut. If the customer is pleased, this will help to ensure repeat business.
